HERC: Metro New York & Southern Connecticut Postdoctoral Fellow in Cold Spring Harbor, New York

Employer Name: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Job Description Summary: Dr. Lingbo Zhang's Lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory focuses on both basic science and translational medicine of hematologic malignancies. The research of the Lab centers on normal and malignant stem and progenitor cells in the hematopoietic system and decodes the role of metabolites, including micronutrients and neurotransmitters, in the tumor microenvironment and their genetic effectors in regulating hematologic malignancies. There are two fully funded postdoctoral fellowships available to investigate the roles of these critical metabolites and their genetic effectors in hematopoietic malignancies and develop novel therapeutic strategies. The Lab utilizes a combination of CRISPR /Cas functional genomics and metabolomics approaches to systematically uncover the critical metabolites and their genetic effectors, including receptors and metabolic enzymes, to reveal mechanistic insights of and identify key drug targets for hematologic malignancies. The ultimate goal is to understand how environmental signals such as diets and nervous system activities modulate blood cell development and cancers. Based on these basic mechanistic insights, the Lab is building innovative therapeutics to treat hematopoietic malignancies that are currently without effective therapeutic options. Environment Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is a world-renowned biomedical research institution in New York. It has shaped contemporary biomedical research and is the home of eight Nobel Prize laureates. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory provides a highly dynamic and interactive research environment and also a unique opportunity of timely exposure to advances in various biomedical research fields and of interaction with a broad range of researchers from all over the world through its renowned Meetings and Courses program. We believe that science is for everyone. We have had researchers with a variety of backgrounds and believe in the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
